Refactored #008: “What Are You Optimizing For?"

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Technology does not (necessarily) progress monotonically, and Chris provides several examples complains a lot.
  • Between the two of them, the guys manage to stumble through a brief history of HipChat, Stride, Slack, and Atlassian.
  • Frank takes a bold stand: Microsoft is incapable of original thought.
  • Chris explains the history of Atom and Electron, and surmises why MS Teams isn’t a great UX.
  • The guys wage mighty battle over the modern-day merits and demerits of GUI vs TUI (or is it CLI?)
  • … and much more!
